Looks like a very complicated crack pipe. Or part of a hookah, perhaps.

It looks like some sort of specialized gauge, or jig...

I have no idea, but its bugging me.

edit: Its also bugging me that I made a typo in the thread title.

Seriously though, it looks to have a fuel fitting, the angled cuts on the nipples (ouch) don't make much sense to me, and then it looks like it has a vacuum side, maybe a regulator of some kind with multiple ports? Some sort of distribution block for fuel and vacuum built into one?
